Publishing involves making the world aware of the books that are being produced, and promoting new titles and the backlist is a key element. The marketing carried out by the Sales and Publicity Department lies at the heart of the publishing process, and on its success hangs the future of the publishing house.
The Sales and Publicity Department designs and puts together sales and promotional material, writes blurbs, maintains databases of customers and the media and the increasingly important bibliographical databases, prepares marketing campaigns, leaflets and review lists, as well as corresponding with authors, booksellers and journalists, and more mundane – though no less essential – tasks, such as office filing. We also pursue new leads, and contact potential outlets and sales channels for new books and backlist titles, and promote the list and imprint as a whole.
We offer work experience placements of not less than two months. The placements are unpaid.
